Musical Mazes

Toddler Pre-Schooler Playtime

Work together to build a maze. You can use things like chairs, tables, pillows, or whatever is handy. Then sing or play music while your child walk’s through the maze. When the music stops, they should stop. See if they can move to the music when it gets faster and slower.

Building a maze takes creativity and problem-solving. Your child needs to think on their feet to start and stop, or move fast and slow with the music. This takes focus. Plus they’ll need to use self-control to respond to the changing music and not just go on autopilot.
